Re: All Access/Echoplex/Prophesy
I knew he was wrong, but how do you tell the tech support guy that?...and still get help. Plus, at that point, I couldn't prove it.
Anyway, the confusing part for me was that I had checked all the CC information, and nothing was being sent in this manner. Turns out, however, that the Rocktron guy was partially right. All the Midi information from Virtual buttons is sent whenever a new preset button is pressed IF the Instant Access Switches are set to Momentary or Latching. Mine where set to Momentary, which I had assumed to be best. Anyway it was a problem with my switch settings on the All Access I changed the switches from Momentary to "hold" which makes the switches act as momentary, but doesn't send Midi information when I change a patch. Exactly what I needed. Problem solved!
Thanks again to all who helped on and off list,

I would double check that you have the CC info in the All Access
correct. I was having the same problem with my EDP behaving strangely,
but only after certain commands. It turned out that I was using the
wrong Virtual Button/Direct MIDI info. For instance, I really wanted
LongUNDO, yet I had programmed UNDO. Also, make sure you've programmed
every Instant Access switch with On = 1 and Off = 0 for the CC info.
If you don't do this, I believe the EPD waits for the next Off message,
which in this case would be the On message from the next Instant Access
switch you press! Hope that makes sense.
